The major in Athletic Training (accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education Programs) prepares students for certification as an Athletic Trainer (ATC), as well as for going to graduate or professional school in medicine on physical therapy.
The major in Exercise Science is primarily a pre-professional program, preparing students for graduate School in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant, Medical and Dental Programs, or advanced graduate training in one of the exercise sciences. Students not seeking post-graduate training can select career opportunities in health related clinical or research environments.
Entering Freshmen and transfer students may be admitted directly into the major in Exercise Science. Entering Freshmen and transfer students seeking admission to the major in Athletic Training are admitted to the Athletic Training Interest Group (ATI). Freshmen participating in the interest group are eligible to apply for admission to the major at the end of the freshman year. Transfer students are eligible to apply for the Athletic Training major after completing 12 University of Delaware Credits, provided they have completed all of the necessary requirements of the interest area.
*NOTE: Transfer students considering the Athletic Training major should understand that this is a four year program. Regardless of how many transfer credits a student brings to the University of Delaware. Program requirements are dictated by the external accrediting agency; therefore, neither the university nor the department has the ability to approve the substitution of courses required for the major. Work completed at other institutions does not articulate with these programs.
